NEW ECO BRAND FROM SUF­FOLK

EADT Suffolk - - FASHION NEWS - All Gin­ger & Jar­dine cloth­ing is cur­rently ex­clu­sively avail­able on­line at gin­gerand­jar­dine.co.uk.

First time Suf­folk en­trepreneur Lynne Jar­dine has launched Gin­ger & Jar­dine from her home in Creet­ing St Peter, near Stow­mar­ket, a range of eco friendly cloth­ing de­signed with lovers of coun­try pur­suits in mind.

The start-up range of long sleeve tops/base lay­ers, roll neck tops, socks and chil­dren’s cloth­ing is made with bam­boo, mak­ing it not only com­fort­able and stylish, but also eth­i­cal, sus­tain­able and mostly made in the UK. Shirts and polo shirts will be added for spring 2020.

Lynne de­cided to fill a gap in the mar­ket when she be­came frus­trated by a lack of cloth­ing de­signed for coun­try pur­suits that uses sus­tain­able and com­fort­able fab­rics.

Born, bred, and still hap­pily res­i­dent in Suf­folk, she pre­vi­ously worked in the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions sec­tor as a char­tered sur­veyor and has launched Gin­ger & Jar­dine with no ex­pe­ri­ence of the cloth­ing in­dus­try.

“Set­ting up my own cloth­ing brand has been a steep but very re­ward­ing and en­joy­able learn­ing curve,” she says. “My ini­tial visits to UK man­u­fac­tur­ers were daunt­ing, but ev­ery­one, with­out ex­cep­tion, has been very help­ful and sup­port­ive.

“I’m pas­sion­ate about keep­ing the oper­a­tion within the UK as much as pos­si­ble, hav­ing seen first-hand the im­pact of the de­cline in this in­dus­try.”

The launch range of roll neck tops is avail­able from just £32, long sleeve tops from £29. So, check out this new Suf­folk born brand that you can wear with com­fort and con­fi­dence in its eco cre­den­tials.
